A Picture Of You
Earlier this Spring, A PICTURE OF YOU was awarded Best Screenplay at the 2014 LA Asian Pacific Film Festival. And most recently it was named NEW YORK TIMES CRITIC’S PICK during its theatrical run earlier this Summer.
Written and directed by J.P. Chan, this gem of a film follows siblings Kyle(Andrew Pang) and Jen (Jo Mei) as they return to their mothers home after her death to pack up her belongings. It’s clear in the first scene that there is a lot of issues beneath the surface of this sibling relationship. I love that director J.P. Chan understands that some times saying nothing says a lot; and the moments when there is dialogue he makes it count.
On arrival at the house the siblings attempt to deal with their mothers death in their own separate ways but when they discover a shocking secret their already strained relationship is pushed to the limits. Funny and heart-warming this film will resonate with audiences for its realism and the way we can all relate to the loss of a loved one. But how we heal, move on and let go is the beauty of ‘A Picture Of You
The film also stars Teyonah Parris (Dear White People; AMC TV series Mad Men) and Jodi Long (TBS TV series Sullivan & Son) and Lucas Dixon(The Glamour Of it All).
